Clash of the Cakes - Winter Edition

Discussion in 'News and Announcements' started by EmmaLie, Jan 15, 2021.

    Hello everyone! We’re starting 2021 off right by bringing back official tournaments! You guys have been requesting another tournament for over a year now so we’re excited to announce that we will be hosting another Cake Wars tournament! With the increasing popularity of Cake Wars, we felt like it was a no brainer to revisit Clash of the Cakes and bring you a new & improved version of our previous Cake Wars tournament!

    This tournament is a collaboration between CWCL, CLN, & Mineplex and we’ve been working diligently to bring you guys a tournament that is more enjoyable and has more of an incentive to win the entire thing! We’re introducing a brand new exclusive tournament winner cosmetic set, which will also be used for future tournaments. Yes, this isn’t the only tournament we want to bring you guys this year!

    Before we get into the bulk of the information, check out the CoTC trailer created by offbread! Big thank you to Rebeliance for creating the tournament keyart as well!

    If you’d like to sign up for this tournament, submit this form. Make sure you read all of the information down below before signing up though. Team registrations close on January 29th but don’t take too long because spots may fill up fast.

    Registrations will be open from January 15th to January 29th
    Matches will start on January 31st
    Tournament will run for about 8 weeks total

    This tournament will consist of two separate stages. The first stage will be played round-robin style, with teams being placed into a group with three other teams. The top two teams from each group will advance to the elimination stage. Should there be a tie in the overall match record, the tie will be broken based on the result of the match between the tied teams. The second stage will be single-elimination, beginning with the 32 teams that move on from the round-robin stage, and continuing until one team is left.

    - Each match will consist of 2 teams

    - A match win is determined by the team that won that 1 round.

    - Round Robin Stage: In this stage, each match will consist of a single round. Your team will play all other teams in the group, and the top two teams from each group will advance.

    - Elimination Stage (Rounds 1 and 2, Quarterfinals): Here you will be doing a best out of 3 [3 Matches]. The first team to win 2 matches will progress.

    - Elimination Stage (Semifinals): If your team makes it to the semifinals, you will be doing best out of 5 (5 matches). The losing teams from this stage will play in the Bronze Match for 3rd place.

    - Elimination Stage (Finals and Bronze Match): If your team makes it to the finals, it will be best out of 5. Whoever wins this round will take 1st place, the loser will take 2nd place and the winner of the Bronze Match will be the 3rd place winner.

    - Teams will be scheduled by Tournament Coordinators on weekends so there is a better chance of the teams making it.

    - The tournament team registrations will be handled and processed by Tournament Coordinators. Visit https://www.mineplex.com/mclsignups to register your team today!
